The fall is an excellent time to give your home a good deep cleaning. You can get rid of all the summer dirt and grime and get the house ready for the colder months to come. Now, when you are giving your home a good deep cleaning, there are a few nooks and crannies you don’t want to forget. Here are four of them you need to pay attention to.
Curtains and Drapes
Your curtains and drapes are both functional and decorative. They help you regulate light and heat coming in the windows, as well as providing privacy. But, they also frame windows and add to your home’s decor. But, those hard-working window treatments gather dust.
If your curtains are washable, get them into the washing machine. For the non-washable variety, use a vacuum to remove the dust build-up. Every couple of years it is a good idea to send non-washable drapes out for dry cleaning.
The carpets in your home capture all the dirt and grime of daily living. While vacuuming helps keep the worst of the debris out of the carpet, some still remain, deep in the fibers. That deeply embedded dirt can make the carpet look old quickly. An annual deep carpet cleaning is the answer. Hiring a professional will get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Ducts and Vents
The air ducts in your home work hard all year round. And the inside shows it, with a thick layer of dust coating the walls. It is a good idea to have your ducts and vents cleaned periodically. Having a professional, like those at C B Lucas Heating & Air Conditioning, clean the duct will ensure the job is done thoroughly so the air you breathe is as clean as possible.
As the seasons change, so do your linen needs. The summer beach towels need to go into the back of the closet while the winter blankets and flannel sheets come forward. While you are exchanging your seasonal linens, it is a great time to clean the entire closet. Get rid of things you no longer need or use. Give it a thorough cleaning. Organize everything that remains and make note of anything you need to replace.
Taking a bit of time this autumn to get the deep cleaning done will make you and your family more comfortable this winter. You can do the cleaning in one spree or pace it out over several weeks to not get overwhelmed. What else is on your fall deep cleaning list?
